Has your knob on the Mr Heater cracked and do you know where to get another one?
Ugh. We have a little Mr Heater buddy heater (the one that runs on the 1 lb propane cylinder). Bought it a few years ago, and have had good results with it. Except for that darn knob!
It's cracked all the way up the stem and the D shaped hole is now rounded off. Can't do much with it. We can 'sort of' start the heater with pliers, but as the darn decal that shows what positions it's supposed to be in to light, etc, has long since peeled off and blown away, it's difficult at best. Not easy to start with pliers.
We contacted Mr Heater and the knobs are fairly cheap - about $1.00 each. But SHIPPING is $7.00 +!
For a measly item like that, there's gotta be a better way of doing this. We've checked locally at all the sporting goods stores for replacement parts, even Camping World, and nobody carries 'em.
Anybody know of somewhere that might carry this or something useable *locally*?
Hubby also asked if you all might be able to recommend a heater that works well outside the hut in the wind. We have an old Paulin (they have since gone out of business, so don't look for them), and it's ok, but a pain in the neck to start and like most heaters we've dealt with, doesn't like to stay lit in the wind. Are we completely out of luck, need to bring the 2 tin buckets with the charcoal in it (his old friend did this at Taylor Res for years), or do you guys have a solution or suggestion?
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
